I use false eyelashes for a night out and have tried Talkia eyelash growth treatment which you apply to your lashes for a few months and they are supposed to grow slightly and fall out less. Yes, that is what it did and my eyelashes were a bit longer and definitely fell out less. But that was about it, I still use it every now and again when I feel I need it but I still didn't have the effective I was longing for.
So I found a mobile beauty therapist who specialised in Jinnylashes (supposedly the best ones for this kind of thing) and I had them applied to my lashes, lash by lash for around 1 and a half to 2 hours - yes a long long time to lie on a flat beauty couch and let me tell you my bum was very numb by the end of it! So I walked away with lots and lots of lashes applied to my lash line to create a lovely long lash effect. I was so pleased with the results. They lasted in perfect condition for about 4 weeks and slowly one by one fell out with my own eyelashes. Towards the end I did have some randomly long extensions left which did look a bit odd but I managed to soak them off with an oily eye make up remover.
I didn't have to wear mascara, however on nights out I applied a special oil free mascara that would not ruin the lashes, just to give a bit more of a dramatic look. I could not use an oil based remover so used 'simple' eye makeup remover as it contains no oils which would remove the lashes.
I loved them. I really did. I could have had infills when they started to fall out which would be cheaper than the initial payment but I didn't want to keep up with the maintenance and only really wanted them for a special occasion.
At the time I had them I didn't really take any pictures of the lashes themselves but I have many pictures of them where I randomly blinked at the wrong time whilst someone took a picture so they are not great but the best I can do.
